* Mommy's Little Helper: iPod Headphones for Toddler

So if you lived in my neighborhood, you would be able to laugh at me (I mean cheer me on!) 
several days a week as I attempt to run/jog/walk my 3 mile hilly loop with "C" in her stroller.

It is all an attempt  to get back in shape and firm up a few jiggles
before my winter hibernating begins.

Hibernating = Read: 
Watching movies, crafting, and reading while eating lots of my dad's delicious baked goods
-- cookies, breads, green chili, more bread, banana bread, zucchini bread, ciabatta, etc. 

So "C" likes to listen to my music but my head phones don't work on her
little ears and I don't want her  to blast out her ear drums so we rigged this little get up
for her to use while "WE" are running.

I made her a little playlist of kid music and try to sing along when I'm not panting too heavily!

I cut an "X" shaped slit in a couple of bathroom paper cups and
popped my earbuds through the hole.
I think I saw something like this on the "Instructables" website once upon a time. 

It serves as a mini- amplifier and it can be held up to her ear 
like an old-fashioned tin-can style "telephone"

A perfectly economical and easy solution that  works for us. 
Not too loud and still lets us  talk to each other and observe the sights around our neighborhood. 

How do you fit in a work-out for YOU during your parenting routine?
